For this, make sure that you have a cardinput that matches to the proper
capture card and the proper channel source.. If you crack open the source,
try to see why libs/libmythtv/tv.cpp:TV::CheckChannel() (starting at line
1656) returns false.

Pretty much the same thing, really.. Take a look at
libs/libmythtv/tv.cpp:TV::SetChannel() (line 884), and see if you can figure
out why it's changing to the wrong channel. I'd like to know the main query
in both cases (stick something like a cout << thequery << endl; after it gets
setup), and the results from the databae.

That's no longer the case with the current database structure -- the internal
channel ids are 1000 + channel number.
